killer of good quality

i've meet here on this forum some new ephitets like: "good quality music" and "killer track". what does it mean? do you mean by "good quality music" good music? has "good quality music" something in common with "well produced"? i dont think so. shame that only two words describe your favorite music. truth is that music is exactly like how you can describe it by words. nobody care about musical content or arangement of track, nobody try to express yourself in oter words. important is only if track is killer or good quality. realy empty words. if track is called "killer" its killer but usualy for my ears. why its hard to make different description? i understand it very well. how to describe something that is completly without any content except fast tempo?

The India forum has it down to a fine art:

Theres killer,
killlllllllllleerrr! and of course

Yeah, I'd support a movement for deepness in tunetalk. Half the fun's in seeing how different people describe the same sound, maybe we could come up with a good international trance dictionary. Atmos-like textured squelches we call 'Moyas' among my friends in Spain -cant remember why- its been passed down generations of 'Hippilakkers,' the local trance tribes

How do you explain sounds?

finally somebody have thought of this
well, i think there must be a nice compromise between good quality and astonishing content...

yet, i guess commonly called "Killer track" can not have very low quality

Like kaz (I think) said once, the top 10 board is used for further mutilation of the word "killer" or something like that.

anyway in my cd reviews on my site I always analyze the tracks elements and try to say if they match or not, if they are produced good or not. In other words I can say that a track is killer but I always have to justify it with the facts and leave my personal oppinions behind...that's how I see a good review of a track           DJ Dovla | Interchill Records, Flow Records

I must add that trance is music of sounds (and sound) so the sound does make a diferent!

KINO OKO, are you unhappy with the fact that that very often people use just a few cliches to describe a track? or that the music being described is well produced but following the same standard formula and thus boring?

What is your main concern, the lack of imagination by the people discussing music or the lack of imagination by some of those who make and release music? Maybe both?

I do not necessarily agree that it is easy to describe music with words? Sometimes it is hard to put raw emotions, like the ones generated by music, into words.

And why in the world did they lock your other topic? It was one of the most intriguing posts I had seen here.

Well, as someone who's trying to describe music in words for the last 5 years, I can say it's no easy task- especially when we're talking complex instrumental music. I usually try to either describe what's in the track, or better, what the track does to me or makes me feel.
Here's an example of an extract from a review of a certain compilation (you might have heard of the artist involved).


A Polish guy hits us next with the amazing X-Moll (T9), dirty hissing jazzy sounds, cigarette smoke and alcohol fumes, and a lot of funk, topped with some psychedelia- delicious!


And of course this is a good point, since this is a media of words, I would like to see more of them around when talking about music (one of the reasons this forum is on). I think our reviews section is alright in that aspect.

I must say though that sometimes I have the feeling that nobody really reads my long detailed reviews- I never got a "killer reviews, man!" response... :-(

Adunno, 'killer' music to me usually sounds like random noise. Skazi, Dark Soho, Parasense. These guys for some reason are considered "killers", the only thing they kill for me is the ability to slip into a trance, which is the point of trance music last time I checked (times may have changed though, that's just me).

As for me saying the top10 is a place to abuse the words "killer" and "DESTRUCTION" and other things like that (with or without caps, or sometimes with parts of each, appearantly, people are divided as to which way is more "killer", I think they all are), well, it rings a bell, and it definately sounds like something I could have said. In case I haven't - STOP USING "killer", "destroying", "war" and other such superlatives about the music which you describe. English has a lot of adverbs and adjectives, using them does both English and you credit.

I'd give a talk about being positive and not negative etc, but I've found it's pretty useless in certain cases, and I have a creeping feeling that this is one of them. Cheers on the topic though, good to see there are people which didn't give up yet. Welcome to the forum
